  • April The Giraffe Is Reportedly Pregnant Again 7 Months After Giving Birth

It has been seven months since April the giraffe gave birth to a cute little calf, later named Tajiri. The last time the viral mama was pregnant, millions watched her livestream from February through April. Although April's pregnancy wasn't out of the ordinary from any other giraffe's, her pregnancy started gaining attention after someone reported her live feed for "sexually explicit" content.

"I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy", Patch said of 15-year-old April.

Patch did say, following the birth, that he was betting on welcoming twice as many visitors to the park as the previous year. But April is also letting Tajiri explore his surroundings, so that he can become as independent as his father is.

"[April's] obviously very in tune to him and protective of him, but she's also allowing him to take on that independent trait that he has, which definitely comes from his father", Patch said, adding that the giraffe has "been an unbelievable mother" to Tajiri. "I can not confirm nor deny the possibility of another pregnancy!" He also fueled people's enthusiasm, adding a rhetorical question: "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?"


The zoo later said they let one of April's caretakers choose the name of the baby giraffe, which means "hope" in Swahili.

Tajiri, April's fourth child, now weighs 450 pounds and, at nearly 10 feet tall, he is almost as big as his mother.

We're all happy to see mother April and her baby calf healthy and we'll keep our fingers crossed for a future baby brother or sister for Tajiri!
